Director Bio

Arun Gopalan is a first year Cinematography student at the L.V. Prasad Film and Television Academy, Chennai, India. Though not from a 'cinema background family', his quest to voice his opinion on various issues like environment degradation, human rights, etc. brought him into the field of film making.

Director's Statement

The director through this short film tries to convey the message of accepting the queer community as it is. Sexual orientation is a personal choice and it is none of the world's business to discriminate certain people on this choice. The director with his first dialogue film experiments by doing a balancing act between keeping the movie as a fictional work as well as an PSA (Public Service Announcement)

can be better

Thanks John.

I did realize that a little more pre-production effort, especially in framing and probably a slightly different ending would have made the movie much much better.
